        Shirvanskaias danashauli. The Crime of Princess Shirvanskaias. First edition.

      Moscow: 1926 - Original color lithograph poster from the collection of Alma Law. Repaired by Sasha Mosolov and mounted on a support sheet. No losses. 102 x 71.5 cm. The best and rarest of the Stenberg posters. From CineMaterial:The Stenberg brothers Vladimir (1899-1982) and Georgii (1900-1933) were Soviet artists and designers. While born in Moscow, both remained Swedish citizens until 1933 because their father was a Swede.The innovative visual aspects of their posters included a distortion of perspective, elements from Dada photomontage, an exaggerated scale, a sense of movement, and a dynamic use of color and typography. Their artwork was frequently based on stills from the films.Radical even today, the posters by the brothers working together were realized within the nine-year period from 1924 to 1933, the year Georgii died at age 33. His motorcycle hit a truck, a few months after the brothers had become Russian citizens. Vladimir continued to work on film posters and organized the decorations of Moscow's Red Square for the May Day celebration of 1947._______________Directed by Ivane Perestiani Maria Shirai Maria Shirai . Princess Shirvanskaya (as M. Shirai) Cinematography by Aleksandre Digmelovi Film Editing by Lev Push as L. PushiProduction Design by S. Gubin-guni Fiodor Push (as P. Pushi)

        [Original art posters]: Crouse-Irving Flower Guild Easter Formal

      [Syracuse, New York]. 1926. Two posters featuring original art. Measuring 19.5" x 30" and 20" x 29". Both are pen and ink with watercolor on stiff board. While unexamined out of the frames they appear near fine with some light toning and a few scattered smudges; one poster with six tack holes at the perimeter from when it was originally displayed. The posters promote the 1926 Easter Formal hosted by the Flower Guild of the Crouse Irving Hospital and Nursing School held on April 10th at the Onondaga Ballroom. Each poster features Jazz Age flappers with bobbed haircuts in shoulder-baring dresses, one playfully pulling up her dress to reveal her slip and bare knees(!), and the other dancing in the spotlight in front of a large Art Deco window to, we assume, Jimmy Day's Nighthawks, the local Syracuse jazz band listed on the posters. Both are signed in the lower right corners by the individual artists. A charming pair of unique Jazz Age posters displaying the popular iconography of the Twenties Flapper. .

Map has been laid on paper with paper reinforcement to two vertical folds; faint library stamp on verso (not affecting map), light wear to folds, 1 inch tear to right lower edge and 3 inch tear to right upper edge all minimised by restoration; overall clean, bright condition and presents very attractively. A richly colored map full of historical information and lore, strikingly designed by Edwin Olsen and Blake Clark. Text at the mid right edge explains: "The street plan of Washington is laid out with the Capital as its centre. The city is divided into four sections, N.E., S.E., N.W. and S.W. by three streets (known respectively as N. Capitol, E. Capitol and S. Capitol) and the mall which extend on lines drawn due north and south and east and west through the centre of the Capitol." The border features historic maps of the area in the corners, and views of historic buildings and places. The third of three maps, inspired by the work of MacDonald Gill, that Olsen and Clark designed for Houghton Mifflin and perhaps the most impressive. .

        Allo! Paris! Avec vingt lithographies par Robert Delaunay.

      Paris, Editions des quatre chemins, (1926). - 110 S., 3 Bll. 20 Original-Lithographien von Robert Delaunay. Nr. 301 von 275 (Gesamtauflage 365) Exemplaren der Normalausgabe aus "papier d`arches". - Erste Ausgabe des einzigen von Robert Delaunay illustrierten Buches, ein Meisterwerk kubistischer Buchillustration. - Monod 3581. The Artis and the book 72. - "Between 1922 and 1928, Delaunay executed five lithographs based on earlier paintings. The prints, like the paintings, exemplify Delaunay`s engagement with the dynamism of Paris, as embodied primarily in its architecture. Favoring monochromatic drawings and prints over the brilliant color for which he was best known, the artist relied instead on chiaroscuro effects in concert with rhythmically placed lines and patterns. Delaunay drew throughout his career with the liquid tusche and greasy black crayon commonly used for lithography, so the process of making prints was not a great departure for him. In all, he made approximately thirty-five lithographs, most of which were book illustrations. A Parisian publisher had planned to include The Eiffel Tower in a portfolio of lithographs by Delaunay, with a text by French novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans, but the project was never completed. As the world`s tallest monument at the time, the Eiffel Tower was for Delaunay a symbol of both modernity and masculinity, and he depicted it time and again. He was among the first artists to focus on this landmark as a subject, and it appears throughout his illustrated book Allo! Paris, with text by Joseph Delteil. Delaunay`s more well-known, purely abstract imagery, comprising concentric, curved, and segmented bands, appears only rarely in his prints" (Jennifer Roberts. MOMA). - Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt, Vortitel stärker gebräunt. Teils unaufgeschnitten. Schönes kaum fleckiges Exemplar. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 900 Kl.-4°.

        Nightfall

      1926. unbound. Drypoint. Signed in pencil. 19 in an edition of 150. Image measures 6 x 8". Sheet measures 9.5 x 11". This etching shows a peaceful waterfront scene at dusk. In the foreground, a bird skims along the surface of the water with its wings outstretched, dragging its feet among the fine reeds. Above, another bird glides in the dimming sky, which has been beautifully depicted with gestural lines. The shadowy trees reflected in the water indicate the setting of the sun. This image is from the second state of the print. It is a bright impression in excellent condition with full margins and no chips or tears.<br><br>Frank W. Benson (1862--1951) was an American Impressionist and Realist artist known best for his work in painting, watercolor, and etching. He got his start as a portrait and mural artist for the Library of Congress and found success as a painter of Academic Realist portraits. Around the turn of the century, his summers in New Hampshire inspired him to take an interest in plein-air Impressionism, with a particular interest in the capture of light and natural surroundings. Yet it is perhaps for his etchings of wildlife for which Benson is most famous, and in particular his etchings of wild fowl, which won him both critical and popular acclaim as well as a place in art history as one of the foremost printmakers of the 20th century. This beautiful image of birds demonstrates what made Benson such a successful and valued artist.

AN EXCEPTIONAL COPY OF THE DE LUXE LIMITED EDITION SIGNED BY ARTIST ARTHUR RACKHAM, ALL THE MORE SCARCE IN THE ORIGINAL DUST-JACKET. Shakespeare’s romantic drama, expertly illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Entering the artist’s world of fantasy, we experience the story of the exiled magician Prospero and his daughter Miranda cast upon a desolate island. We encounter Shakespeare’s graceful nymphs and a marvelous assortment of goblins and fairies, all imaginatively depicted by Rackham. Though not one of Rackham’s most popular books in its day, The Tempest has wonderfully found its place with the passage of time. The images are full of dynamic movement, good humor, and subtle atmosphere. Together they tell Shakespeare’s tale with the artist’s characteristic imagination and charm.

An important literary testament from an important figure in the American literary renaissance.

        North American Indians.

      Edinburgh: John Grant,, 1926. Being Letters and Notes on Their Manners, Customs, and Conditions, Written During Their Eight Years' Travel Amongst the Wildest Tribes of Indians in North America. 1832-1839. 2 volumes, large octavo, original pictorial red cloth, titles gilt to spines and front covers with pictorial decoration in gilt and black, top edge gilt, others uncut. Over 300 colour illustrations on 180 plates, including 3 coloured maps, one folding. Spines faded, some light foxing to endleaves; an excellent, fresh set. A young lawyer turned portraitist, Catlin set out in 1830 from his home in Pennsylvania to record on canvas the indigenous tribes of North America and their way of life. His eight years among the major tribes of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains resulted in his "Indian Gallery," an enormous collection of artefacts as well as more than four hundred paintings, including portraits and scenes of tribal life. The resultant book, first published with uncoloured plates in 1841, is "one of the most original, authentic and popular works on the subject" (Sabin). "The history and the customs of such a people," Catlin wrote, "preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life, shall prevent me from becoming their historian" (Hassrick).

        Anni Albers, »Study Rug« (klein).

      - Ein fantastisches Sammlerstück für Ihr Zuhause: Visuell und haptisch ein herrliches Stück, stammt die Komposition »Study Rug« aus der Hand der sicherlich berühmtesten Textilkünstlerin des 20. Jahrhunderts, Anni Albers. Ursprünglich im Jahr 1926 als Wandbehang aus Baumwolle und Seide konzipiert, befindet sich die Entwurfszeichnung (Gouache auf Papier) heute im Museum of Modern Art New York. In enger Zusammenarbeit mit der Anni und Josef Albers Stiftung und durch diese authorisiert, wurde das Werk, welches ganz dem Geiste des Bauhauses verschrieben ist, in das Medium Teppich überführt. Überaus akribisch wurde an der Übereinstimmung mit dem Original gearbeitet, um eine höchst mögliche Übereinstimmung zu gewährleisten, die Limitierung auf 150 Exemplare kommt dem ebenfalls entgegen. Die manuelle Produktion des Teppichs in Indien, Nepal oder Pakistan erfolgte unter besonderem Augenmerk auf ethische Grundsätze, vor allem in Hinsicht auf Arbeitsbedingungen, Entlohnung und Kinderschutz in den traditionellen Knüpfbetrieben der jeweiligen Region und in den beteiligten Familien. Es versteht sich von selbst, dass das Material vollkommen unbelastet ist und die Wolle nur mit Pflanzen gefärbt wurde. Ein wertiges und einnehmendes Stück angewandte Kunst, ein kleiner, privater Kunstgenuss für jeden Tag! 90 x 152 cm, 100% Wolle handgeknüpft, limitierte Edition (150 Expl.), mit Echtheitszertifikat, aufwändig verpackt, mit »Care & Fair«-Label.
